Lately I’ve been thinking about how lucky I was in terms of being raised. While there some hiccups, bad moments, and eventual trauma in my puberty years… I’m so relieved that my parents allowed me to just be a kid.
I was into Polly Pocket and Bratz and I even obsessed over those cringe direct-to-video Barbie movies. But when my interests shifted to TMNT and cartoons that featured predominantly male superheroes, my parents weren’t bothered. When I wanted to sign up for afterschool sports, and was the only girl on the team, my parents encouraged me to do my best.
There was never any doubt regarding my gender identity or expression. My parents never went behind my back and consulted a child psychologist about me being a girl and having an interest in “boy things.” They never asked me, “Do you feel like a boy or a girl?” And they certainly had no issue with me disliking dresses.
Had I been a child in this current day and age, and displaying this type of behavior, my parents might’ve been consulting the LGBTQ+ and trans subreddits for advice. My mom might’ve purchased a book to read to me. Perhaps my father would’ve encouraged me to go out for all sorts of sports and activities. I would’ve been asked, “Should we call you by a different name…?”
I could go on and on. I’ve read so many stories and articles about parents who drop everything and essentially encourage a transition without their child evening mentioning how they feel. All because they see their child participating in activities that are associated with the opposite sex, playing with certain toys, etc.

2022.01.23 02:55 TheFernando13 A little help with the Lego Star Ears games
I recently got the feeling to play the Star Wars Lego games (my intention isn't to play all the Lego Star Games but the ones I already have), some years ago I played Lego Star Wars The Complete Saga and now I see there are more, I just got the Lego Star Wars II The Original Trilogy and Lego Star Wars Clone Wars, the question here is, by playing the complete saga there is no need to play the other two since they are just fragments of the complete saga or are they completely different games? I guess I might hear so dumb but I'm confused and I will appreciate any help :)

2022.01.23 02:55 HornyBajur Girl and I are on the verge of entering into a relationship, but I want to know if she likes for who I really am. Am I going the right way about it?
So this girl and I have been talking for a few months now. We met a few times and ultimately kissed after which she had to move away for a couple of months but is returning in February. We come from dofferent cultural backgrounds but those aren't a problem. We have quite a bit in common and I like her a lot. She is very smart, talented, honest, loved by all and beautiful. What concerns me is that, I tend to have dark humour which many may find offensive or derogatory, I sweacurse a lot, I am a non-vegetarian and consume meat regularly and I enjoy having sex and to be able to sexually say what I want and talk to dirty to the person who would be my SO is important. To sum up, I just want to be my true self without holding back and still have someone accept me. I know that the qualities, that I have stated above maybe considered to be bad or poor in character but that's who I am and these are not things I can change in a day or do I feel as if I need to change when I am personal with someone.
The girl doesn't like that I swear, she can't understand my humour or memes that I send, she says that she'll change me into a vegetarian like her or atleast make me decrease my meat consumption and last night I openly told her that I enjoy being sexual and talking dirty but I will never make her do anything she doesnt want to do. She is a virgin and she said that there are ethical and moral things preventing her from doing anything about it now. But she has accepted most things. She said she doesnt care about me swearing now, she asked me to send whatever I found funny because if it was funny to me then she wants to know. She's kinda holding onto making me a vegetarian but I told there is no way thats happening and to not get into this hoping I change one day. And even I have accepted the facts about her as well. She consumes alcohol but I don't , she is religious but I am an atheist and I don't have any problem with that as long as it doesn't hamper our relationship.
TLDConclusion : She sees me as a very good guy and great person but I also want her to like me for what I actually am. Am I being unreasonable by being as forthcoming as possible and asking her if she is willing to accept these things about me? I tell her things like and off late I have been telling these things with more frequency, I love eating meat, I am a sexual person who is horny, I don't believe in god etc etc and is she still willing to accept someone like me while simultaneusly telling her that I am willing to accept her differences with me are not as big as my differences are for her. She keeps saying that she is but I told her we should talk more once she's back, spend some time and then decide what we should do. Is this the way or should I do something else?

2022.01.23 02:55 ireaditforthejokes asshole in movie theater recording film with his phone
Just saw spiderman no way home, awesome film.
This cocksucker sitting up front where everyone can see, whips out his phone and texts during multiple parts of the movie. His phone is on full brightness it tore my eyes away from the film everytime he pulled it out.
during the epic finale he pulls out his phone and holds it up a little above his head and films the entire final action scene. Fucking bright ass phone in everyone's view while trying to immerse an enjoy the final part of the movie.
I fucking hate these jerk off phone addict fucked who need to film every moment of their life. Your watching a movie, watch the fucking movie. What are you gonna rewatch your garbage ass recording to remember the awesome shit that you missed? Get lost fucker and stay outta our local theatre. I hope this dude breaks his fucking hands so he can only use his phone with his feet, scumbag shit fuck. 😡
